Jake Robinson, Builder to the stars
Jake Robinson’s reputation as an outstanding craftsman has resulted in him becoming a carpenter to the stars, with a long list of celebrity clients including Chris Tarrant and Denise Van Outen.
He discovered his flair for carpentry while he was at boarding school in West Sussex, where he made personalised shoeboxes for his teachers. This natural talent earned Jake quite a reputation and pocket money, and he spent his holidays helping out at a local building site. At 17, he became a kitchen fitter having gained a City & Guilds certificate in carpentry.
Jake got his first TV break when he was working behind the scenes on Changing Rooms and Carol Smiley suggested he tried his luck in front of the camera.
Since then, having been a regular presenter on BBC 1’s Big Strong Boys and Builders Sweat and Tears, Jake has become one of the nations favourite DIY experts. His reputation as an outstanding craftsman, at both designing as well as building homes, has resulted in him become a “carpenter to the stars”, with a long list of celebrity clients including Chris Tarrant and Denise Van Outen. He is equally at home working on a one to one basis with private clients, or organising a team of workers as site manager.
Jake recently was chosen to oversee the construction of the huge masterpiece on BBC 1’s live primetime showpiece for Rolf On Art – The Big Event.
Jake now also runs The Islington Building Company, providing building services including extensions, refurbishments, shop-fitting, decorating, plumbing, electrics, flooring, bespoke furniture and much more.
